> Is the amount of kernels in 520 bushels of ear corn equivalent to 520 bushels of shelled corn?
Now, the conversion isn't perfect, and bushels is supposed to be a volume measurement, but everyone does the weight & moisture adjustments and converts to an 'ideal bushel' from the weight, instead of the volume.
This year my corn is testing very heavy, was over 62 lbs a bu on much of it, so you probably have a few more bu that last year, in the same volume...
Sounds like you have a good plan.
Your 4 acres might have been the cow or hog yard, and is unnaturally high in P & K? Or you put manure on it from your livestock? Or the soil type is different and you have the good stuff?
I got over 200bu on a 5 acre patch, another 5 acre patch I got nothing at all, average is looking like 140 here too, but it was a tad too dry, if I had caught an inch more rain in August, oh my to the nmoon like folks an hour north of me...
